2023 Alumna of the Year

Wendy (McConnell ‘ 91) Endres says she was completely surprised to receive the top Alumni Award for 2023.  “I’m sure there are others more deserving,” she said. “I am only doing my part to help where and when I can.”  But helping, where and when she can, is a whole lot of help. 
Wendy has been the Chairperson of the SHAgala dinner/auction for the past seven years and has worked not only to involve new parent volunteers but has been in the lead role as the 2023 event logged its highest proceeds ever, breaking records for SHAgala income and for donations to the teachers. 

Wendy has been a classroom volunteer, chaperoned field trips and 5th & 6th grade leadership camp and has been actively involved in athletics to support the sports her boys play.   She and her husband, Ryan, who is a past president of the SHA Athletic Association, have teamed up on many efforts for the Academy.  They have volunteered for parish events and sold parish raffle tickets in addition to SHAgala cash raffle tickets.
